Court Harrington
North Carolina will always be home to Harrington.  He grew up in the Concord area, went to college a couple hours up the road at UNC-Chapel Hill then moved back to the Lake Norman area just north of Charlotte. 

His poker career started by chance.  After playing in small fun home games with friends he picked up online poker and had success early on.  While playing online for profit but recreationally, mutual acquaintances connected Court with PocketFives during the summer of 2006.

The PocketFives team was looking to launch a project covering live poker tournaments from the perspective of online players entering those major events.  Having a journalism degree from UNC, some published articles under his belt, a flexible schedule and a growing knowledge of poker the fit was an easy one for Harrington to take over the project.

Once on the tournament trail Harrington teamed up with Barry Greenstein and Joe Sebok and a few others to launch, a poker entertainment website that featured multiple award winning poker related podcasts.  Harrington worked closely with many aspects of the site and company but was most visible in his role as sometimes host and regular co-host of the flagship PokerRoad Radio program.

With the legal climate for online poker operators changing in the United States in April of 2011 the PokerRoad project was put on hiatus. 
While poker has become a passion and career for Harrington he has never given up on his other goals.  Court grew up water-skiing and went on to ski competitively at UNC.  He still skis regularly and continues to push the envelope on the water in slalom, barefooting and hydrofoiling

His entrepreneurial spirit and strong ambition have led Harrington to start a small business of his own while continuing to play a significant amount of hours of poker and doing regular consulting work behind the scenes in the poker industry.
